Is It Really Hotter Than Hell??

It certainly seems so; although I would not want to sample the other! It reached 89 degrees here today, humidity felt like 100%. You know, one of those days when the scorching hot wind takes your breath away. If you noticed the time of this blog --- yes, it's 2:12 AM!! I cannot sleep. I went to bed at 11:00pm. Got up 3 times. I think I did doze off for about 10 minutes in between each time. I have to get up at 6:00 and get to work; which will be another hectic, crazy, maybe long day. Crap.

Right now it is still 79 outside; humidity hasn't changed much. The air conditioner and 7 fans have been running non stop for over 24 hours. Needless to say, they have not made a bit of difference in the house. When I saw the inside thermometer read 89 in here, I knew I was cooked!! HA! Cooked! Right now I can hear the windchimes tinkling and the curtains are moving a bit. We are supposed to get a rain storm tonight -- eh, this morning(?). I'm still waiting for it. How do people live like this down South?

On top of all this, I think I'm going deaf. I had to apologize to a co-worker today when I had to keep asking her to repeat herself everytime she said something to me. I told her with all the fans, the dehumidifier, the airconditioner running, all I hear is a constant loud whirring in my head!

Son came up last night to go fishing with BH this weekend. They left the house at 4:00 this morning and got home at 5:45 tonight. I had pot roast and roasted corn-on-the-cob on the grill; salad in the fridge and warm home-made bread ready. I was starving! They had to unload the car; put the fish on ice - 2 nice trout already cleaned (yea!) and have a drink before dinner. I'm starving here!!

They're supposed to go out again today -- much later -- for bass. Depends on when the rain(?) lets up.

Monday is supposed to be another fishing day. I will be at work until late. Son will probably leave for home before I get home. Then I will collapse!

I'm taking a break from "Spring" cleaning this week. Gotta take our 17 year old cat to the vet for her shots on Wednesday. And I definitely have to call our auto mechanic for an appointment. The car is making weird noises. Sounds like the undercarriage is going to fall off. Not good.

Ya know, it just occurred to me as I got up to get another glass of water - I think I drank about 2 gallons today - that's probably one of the reasons why I can't sleep. Coincidentally, every time I got up, it's because I had to go to the bathroom! See how things just come together?! Hmmmm.

Ok, I do think I'm going to go back to bed. If I still can't sleep, I'll get up and spin for a while. Then I'll put the coffee on and make breakfast. What the hell.

We are due to have 90's until Thursday and no rain until then also. I have watered the garden once and will probably do so again tomorrow. Not that I want winter but I wouldn't mind a cold front moving in! Stay cool
